BENEFITING: EMPACT-Suicide Prevention Center

EVENT: 22 for the 22

EVENT DATE: Nov 13, 2016

THE STORY:

About me:  
I am a survivor of suicide.  My son Chris served in the Arizona Army National Guard and was deployed during Operation Iraqi Freedom as a part of a Military Police Unit.  9 months after his return from Iraq, Chris died by suicide while stationed at Fort Huachuca. I facilitate a Survivor of Suicide support group through La Frontera Empact and welcome military and civilian family members trying to find a way to maneuver through life after suffering a loss to suicide.

Why I’m Marching:
I would like to raise awareness of the high number of military suicides each day.  By raising this awareness I hope we can focus on prevention and education so other families won’t live in the pain and sorrow of losing a loved one to suicide.  I can’t get my son back, but I want to be instrumental in raising awareness and being a voice of change in educating our military and public to the number of suicides each day that take the life of someone who willingly served his/her country to ensure our freedom.

Chris was like a big brother to me. He was a great person to be around and I can still hear his goody laugh to this day. You may be gone but you will always have a place in my heart. Continue to look down on all of us and keep us safe. I know I'll see you again some day. Love you 2 years ago
